my 09 Firecat has less than 50 shots out of it. Today i go to shoot it and I hear a click sound. I check the bow out to see what may have caused it, only to discover my lower limb has a crack right up the edge of the bow.. After ONLY 50 SHOTS !!! I got the bow in March and I keep it in a hard padded case.. I'm less than 4 weeks away from the season and now its gonna be back to the drawing board for sighting in and tuning.. I know Martin will fix this but I hope it doesn't take 4 months to do it.. By the way i only have the bow set @ 63# with arrows @ 417gr.... I hope the new limbs are more reliable.....

WOW sorry to hear about this, sucks. I have a friend who has about 12 Martin bows, some from the 90's and he has never had a Martin Limb crack on him. Well like you said Martin will take care of you and good luck.

took my bow to the dealer today... I hope its a quick turn around.... I think Martin sends limbs to the dealer and not the dealer sending the bow to them..

My dealer just got the limbs under RA, or replacement and i got the bow back in a week, and i did not have to re-tune the bow:D

I'm from Pa. so can tell you that if Martin gets the limbs out right away it'll be about a week till they get to your dealer. They have no way of pushing UPS any faster than UPS will go. One week is the normal shipping time for anything I have ordered.

Wish ya luck in hunting season, dude.
